Creole / Cajun / Southern
The Bistro at Muriel’s Jackson Square offers contemporary Creole cuisine with New Orleans classics like Seafood Gumbo, Turtle soup, Shrimp & Grits and Wood Grilled Pork Chop while the Courtyard Bar is the perfect place to drop by for drinks and appetizers. The Séance Lounge is the place for a relaxed, comfortable meeting before or after dining. Comprised of two areas, The Outer Seance and The Inner Séance, the Séance also tells the story of a mystic checkered past. The Outer Séance addresses the New Orleans era of Storyville when Muriel's Jackson Square was one of the French Quarter's top bordellos! The Inner Séance is the preferred domain of the resident ghost, Pierre Antoine Lepardi Jourdan; is the perfect spot for an intimate conversation or a drink among its plush surroundings. The 170 foot wrap-around balcony is a splendid spot for enjoying our specialty cocktails or private label Napa wines.

Since COVID everyone seems to be having issues with service. Service at Muriel's was terrible. There were 3 different people who had introduced themselves as our servers. The first informed us it was her first night and she was in training. We are foodies and understanding but 3 people should have been able to take care of us somewhat. Food was awesome and we did the prix fixe courses. Service unfortunately ruined the experience for us. Hope they can get more help.

We were seated at a lovely corner table, which was artfully and tastefully separated from the next table by decorated room dividers. The service was professional, warm and friendly, the wine delicious, and the food amazing. We did ask the young water-in-training which of the chardonnays were buttery; he replied, "All of them," which was not really accurate. (The least expensive, Pebble Lane, by the way, was far more buttery than the most expensive by-the-glass offering.)
Yes, the Wood grilled double cut Pork Chop is what they claim: gererously portioned, moist, satisfying. Same for the Blackened Redfish, and the accompanying sides.
After dinner, we made our way to the balcony with our libations and took in the parade celebrating Joan of Arc's birthday.
Do not miss this restaurant!

The restaurant was nice it was as if they didn’t want us to dine there the hostess was the main issue. She was very rude and not very personable which set off the entire chain of events. This was our second time dining at this restaurant and our first experience was great. I don’t know what the problem was but it was a very dismal dining experience.

Granted, we were here for New Years Eve so a huge grain of salt!

We booked the latest seating and I was shocked when were hustled out in less than 90 minutes. We were ready to buy another round, coffees (prix-fixe menu precluded the need for dessert). I totally understand staff has to do what they are told but the effect was jarring and came off as very rude.

However! It’s historic, the food is good enough and dining out on a holiday comes with challenges. Maybe perfect for someone less inclined to order more and linger?

This was our fourth or fifth time we have had New Years Eve dinner at Muriel’s. We have always had great experiences until this year. Our primary server was basically nasty. Our server who took our drink and wine orders was terrific. But our primary server wanted us to order dinner before we even got our first drink order. When we told her we needed time, she made a face at us. Come on! It isn’t like the restaurant was going to turn the table. And, she once we ordered, she did not check back to see how our food was - and, of course, one of us ordered a medium rare filet and it was beyond well done. NOT NICE!

We were in town for the Sugar Bowl, and the only time we could get was 4:00pm. The meals and service were both excellent— which you don’t always find these days on a regular day, let alone on NYE. This was our 3rd visit to Muriel’s over the years and it is always good! Glad to know the pandemic didn’t change this!

My wife and I were in town for a 3 day New Year’s weekend. We ate at Muriel’s as our splurge meal. We had a 5pm reservation on 12-30 since the plaza was booked solid for New Year’s Eve. Our waiter, Chad was very attentive and responsive to our needs. My wife had the Crispy Salmon with green beans while I had Shrimp & Grits. Both were hot and very tasty. Our only complaint was that there wasn’t enough food to be totally satisfying. Another side dish option would have been welcomed.

The ambiance was pleasant. They earned bonus points for asking to see our COVID vaccination cards as we entered. My wife also was able to get a half priced cocktail at the last few minutes of happy hour ending at 5pm

This was our second visit to Muriel’s and it did not disappoint. We dined there two months ago and wanted to share it with our children over the holidays. It was decorated beautifully for Christmas and the food was absolutely fabulous. We highly recommend the pecan praline bread pudding! Great, fun atmosphere and service. A must if you are in the French Quarter.

We had a wonder experience at Muriel’s. Lydia and Travis did an excellent job making us feel welcome and were very helpful with navigating the menu. Highly recommend checking this place out! Food and drinks were delicious!! Also, after your meal, definitely come up to the balcony with after dinner cocktails to really ring in the evening. Beautiful view of Jackson Square!

We got married in Jackson Square and are back for our 10 year anniversary. The redfish and the pork chop were DELICIOUS. My husband is a huge bread pudding fan and loved your bread pudding. The duck confit salad was also amazing. Thank you for a great meal!
